How to See Color? | Part 3: Color Harmony | Video-course by the CEO of Dehancer – Pavel Kosenko

Color wheel is one of the most popular concepts when it comes to color harmony. It is believed that, on this wheel, colors are located in a special way. And if they balance each other out and add up to a neutral color, then they are harmonious.

That’s fake news.

In this video we’re debunking the color wheel myth, and share the tips and tricks to actually harmonise colors. Take notes.


How to See Color? | Part 2: Variability | Video-course by the CEO of Dehancer – Pavel Kosenko

Long-awaited continuation of Pavel Kosenko’s video-course is here! Today we’ll focus on variability and how it helps us “savour” colors. We’ll look at the 3 main components:


Watch the video to find out how the synergy of these variables can create a rich and sophisticated image.
